This is very close to my recipe (which I couldn't find) so I used this to make my Boxing Day Meatballs!! After making the meatballs I roll them in flour and fry them in several batches. I made 6 pounds of ground beef into meatballs and doubled the sauce recipe. After the meatballs are all browned I gently place them into my roaster and cover them with the sauce. I very gently turn them several times over the next hour (or a bit more) until they are covered in a lovely sticky sauce. My extended family ask for these every year. So glad I found your recipe here.
Very Good!!! Had kind of a sweet and sour taste to it - my kids and husband even ate it and liked it, which was a big surprise!!! Thanks so much for posting.
